Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e confirmed that the targeting operation of the ship came after its crew refused the calls from the naval forces, as well as repeated fiery warning messages.

Sare’e added, “The Yemeni armed forces continue to carry out their military operations and implement the decision to prevent Israeli navigation in the Arab and Red Seas until the aggression stops and the siege on the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip is lifted.”

The military spokesman concluded his statement by saying: “The Yemeni Armed Forces continue to take all defensive and offensive measures within the legitimate right to defend dear Yemen and in confirmation of continued practical solidarity with the oppressed Palestinian people.”
